Looks interesting, when choosing which bridge to install consider how much routing you would have to do to make it fit? Good luck

if you want a trem, go with a Wilkinson VS100G, For floating use a Floyd, if you like fixed bridge, use a Gotoh 510 Bridge or standard vintage strat

I like the grey. better than the sticker covered lunch box look.

do you like olives?

Sure, great on Pizza

I love Greek olives.

I'm not a enormous fan of the gray, but perhaps you like it a lot. I'd do something more colorful like red or something. Or maybe just all white. But it's your guitar. Otherwise, looks interesting.

because a round spray pattern is a pain and most people buy cheap home grade stuff that will fade/crack/rub off etc.
What I play:
CustomShop '51 Nocaster Relic
'88 "C" neck Clapton Strat
'08 Strat HSH
Fender Princeton Recording Amp
Boss Micro-BR

If you get the right spray paint, and use it properly (i.e. put a proper clear coat on it) then there will be no problems.
And, like I said before, if not spray paint, then what?

nitrocellulose laquer. or rustoleum. both work extremely well, but the nitro only comes in colors specifically designed for bursts...

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

Rustoleum is a spray paint bro... I seriously do not understand what your saying. All he has to do is get the right type of spraypaint... You do understand that spray paint is a mdium right, not a specific type of paint... there are different kinsd of spray paint lol.

rustoleum is a spray paint but for some reason, it seems to work better for guitars
